Dominican Authorities Seize 390 Drug Packets

SANTO DOMINGO Ė Agents of the Dominican Republicís DNCD drug enforcement agency, backed by other government institutions, seized 390 packets of a white powder, presumed to be either cocaine or heroin, from inside a shipping container discovered in the National District.

Members of the drug enforcement agency, accompanied by the corresponding judicial authorities, found inside the container the packets of white powder, DNCD spokesman Carlos Devers reported in a statement to the press.

In the course of the investigations, the anti-drug agency and the Public Prosecutorís Office have interrogated more than a dozen people to determine where the shipment came from, where it was headed and who could possibly be implicated in the case.

The DNCD, together with other intelligence and security agencies, is continuing its in-depth investigations around the suspicious substance, which, according to the first inquiries, could have come from Colombia, Devers said, without specifying how much the packets weighed.

Nonetheless, since the investigation is still underway and so as not to stall the inquiries, the DNCD will later provide further details about the confiscation of the drug.

The 390 packets of the substance were sent to the National Institute of Forensic Sciences (INACIF), which will determine the kind of narcotic seized and the exact weight of the shipment.
